TAR command not found


Hi, I have download plug in from macromedia in red hat linux. I have unzip the file and it become the TAR package system. So I use the TAR command to install this plug in. But when I use the TAR command to install the file that I download it display an error that "The TAR command not found". I try to log as root and use the same command but it still prompt me as the above statement. Does any one know what the problem is?? and how to solve it?????

Linux commands are case sensitive. The command is tar (all lower case), not TAR.

Is tar instaled? It should be, are you using lower case? 'tar' is different from "TAR" and the first one is correct

Ohhhhh, I just try the command TAR. I will try tar instead of TAR. But I read the book "Beginning RedHat Linux 9", it describe that use the command TAR. But may be I need to check at its Errata.

Thank to all of you!!!
